Visitors can listen to live shamisen music played by two young girls at a four day-long cultural event introducing the culture of southern Japan in Hanoi from August 10-13.
The Hanoi People’s Committee will cooperate with Fukuoka prefecture of Japan to organize Fukuoka Cultural Days at the Daewoo Hotel in Hanoi, which aims to introduce the culture of southern Japan to the Vietnamese people and celebrate the forthcoming 1,000th anniversary of Thang Long-Hanoi.
Various activities will take place during the event, including exhibitions, cultural exchanges, fashion shows, , the traditional Japanese tea ceremony, origami (paper folding), and music and dance performances.
Two girls from Yame, a Japanese city famous for its green tea, will play the shamisen, a traditional Japanese musical instrument that dates back to the 16th century dressed in traditional Japanese kimonos.
Young residents can take part in the exciting sosaku dance with 32 high schoolgirls, who have won first prize in cultural events in Japan. Anyone who loves manga comic strips has the chance to have famous artists Shiitake and Tao draw their portraits right before their eyes.
A Fukuoka-style collection will take the stage August 13, for Vietnamese fashion lovers. In addition, people can try on the yukata, a Japanese summer kimono worn by both men and women.
Gourmets will have chance to taste good fruits and cakes of Fukuoka, especially Taiyaki, a Japanese fish-shaped cake.
Japan's most famous modern flower arranger, Shogo Kariyazaki, will create artistic works from Vietnamese flowers in the display corner of the event.
Entrance is gratis.
